Asakusa Samba Carnival 2016 photos

With the Rio Olympics in 2016, I thought seeing Asakusa Samba this year was a good idea. It was a cool day as well, not the usual summer heat. It did rain a bit, but I’ll take the cool over a hot summer sun any day. Photos shot on Aug. 27, 2016, 1 pm to 6 pmĀ in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan.
